Everyone who goes to Berklee is different on almost every level. There are all different types of personalities, races, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, political beliefs, religions and sexual orientations. There are people from all over the world, almost every country, and the students vary in their economic backgrounds. There are people who are very rich and people who are very poor but we all come together to learn music and everyone is very accepting of everyone else.

The housing is VERY expensive in Boston, especially if you live right near campus, like I do. If you live in surrounding areas, you'll have to take the T to get to the campus. It's best if you don't have a car because paying for parking is really expensive too. It's fairly simple to find a roommate because everyone is looking for one. It seems to be pretty safe. Everyone usually minds their own and keeps to themselves. The school has some resources to help you find a place to live in the surrounding areas.

Parking on campus can be a nightmare. Be sure to get to campus at least 30 minutes before your class to ensure you'll get a space and make it to class on time. As a freshman, you get the worst parking. there is no parking available, and it gets very expensive.

Student life at Berklee is horrible, no one talks to each other or gets along. no social event, very independent. Very Lonely.

Health & Safety:
I never have felt unsafe on campus or while in class, but I will say that this past semester there were many reports of robberies near the school. These mostly occur for students living off campus heading home. Best idea is to just be aware of when you are walking alone.

Well, most of the apartments around are expensive.

The campus isn't too big, distance from parking is not a problem.

Have not had an internship yet but am looking forward to future opportunities. I have heard there are numerous, decent opportunities to take advantage of.

Berklee does not have any athletic teams though nearby colleges allow students to participate on their teams.
College Sophomore 2012-12-13T05:16:14Z
some drug use but Berklee is a very intense, expensive school and most of the students are very focused on their education.

freshman are required to purchase a new Mac which is then pre-loaded with all the programs you'll need. Technical help, tutoring, and wi-fi are abundantly available.

The computers are some of the best and up to date. Every student receives a macbook as a part of tuition.

The Contemporary Writing & Production (CWP) major gives a well-balanced approach to today's education which requires one not only to be well-versed in music but also in technology.

I had to go through the verification process for my fafsa which was a bit of hassle. But it was okay. I still received my grant. But I'm still waiting for the loan. Just apply in time and you will be fine. If there is any problem, just contact the Financial Aid office. They are always ready to help!!

The campus housing is usually clean with options and a good sense of community. Besides having to deal with construction outside and things like that, the are quality dorms in the heart of campus.
College Junior 2012-11-16T20:08:50Z
If you can find it, the housing off-campus is ok. It can be expensive and some rate may be found if you neglect the problem for awhile (This is standard in a city). Get a realtor and he or she should be able to help you quickly.

People from all around the world come here and each person has a very particular and unique background musically and ethically. It adds a pure depth and special reputation to the community. If it wasn't for this, Berklee wouldn't have such a great reputation.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
